‘ Great service from start to finish. ’

Professional service from Kevin and his team. Gates look great and work perfectly. The fitting team were very efficient and tidy and the increase in my coffee bill was well worth it! I would definitely recommend Fortress Gates to anybody thinking of having new gates.


‘ First class service ’

The service i received from Fortress was outstandingly good. A friendly and helpful discussion about new car port gates was followed by a detailed drawing being emailed to me for my approval. The fitting was done efficiently, quickly and to a very high standard. I am very pleased with the result


‘ Top drawer install of electric gates ’

I very rarely write reviews but these guys and the quality of their workmanship absolutely deserves a mention, from initial consultation right up to the finished product I cannot fault them and their service it really was a pleasure dealing and doing business with you Kev and Neil and the finished install is absolutely spot on, I was always kept informed throughout the project and nothing was too much trouble for them even on handover they took time to explain the system so me and my family knew exactly how the various accessories worked,these guys really do offer a bespoke service and product and you really wont find better or more professional people to deal with. Thankyou guys it really was pleasure, all the best.


‘ Kevin is a craftsman. ’

Kevin and his team have created a work of art. A truly beautiful gate that enhances our home. It certainly makes a statement. Kevin designed and delivered the end product more than met our expectations. Kevin even completed well ahead of schedule. The after service is impeccable. I am so pleased we chose Kevin.

‘ Fortress restored our faith ’

After a bad experience with another local gate supplier we turned to Fortress to get the work done properly! From the initial quote and subsequent planning stage through manufacture and finally the installation, Kevin and the team were outstanding.

Both the level of service and the quality of workmanship are without question at the highest level. If you are looking for the best available then Fortress will deliver.

‘ A Tricky Job ’

We recently had electric gates fitted by Fortress. A tricky job for Kev and Neil due to the gradient of the driveway across which they were fitted. What a fantastic job they have done. Pure genius - they look amazing!
It's refreshing to deal with a company that is so focused on getting everything exactly as the customers wants.
The quality of work was superb but on top of that Kev and Neil are two of the nicest gentlemen I've met in a long time.
We would have no hesitation in recommending these guys 100%.

‘ New Metal Gates ’

After reading the rave online reviews and actually dealing with Kev and Neil at Fortress Gates, we were so confident in their professional capability that our new metal gates were installed when we were on holiday; they even took the old ones down for us. Needless to say we were delighted with the result as they looked absolutely fabulous and the workmanship is superb. Dealing with Kev and Neil is a dream as they are very efficient and always do what they say they are going to do, which these days is very rare.

The whole experience has been hassle free and we would highly recommend Fortress Gates & Fabrications.

‘ Guide Dog Enclosures ’

I have returned from annual leave today and was pleased to see our new dog pens installed. I just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you. The pens look fantastic and perfect for what we need. I am sure you could tell how pleased the team were yesterday but just wanted to pass on my personal thanks also to you and your team.

We will definitely be in touch as and when we have the budget to purchase the remaining pens, most likely in 2018.

 Many thanks again. Look forward to speaking to you again soon.

‘ Fantastic customer service metal gates to the highest standard ’

I recently had my drive installed with electric metal gates from Fortress, I was so happy with the standard of work and the quality of the customer service it was to the highest standard right from the quote level all the way through to the final day. I had updates all the way through from Kevin via telephone calls and emails of pictures of how my new gates were coming along which I was really pleased with. Nothing was left unplanned or not thought out and ran by me to see if it was exactly how I wanted it. Kevin and Neil came to do the install and the quality of their work was exceptional along with making you feel at ease all the way through the job. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting gates fitted as the service and work is pure quality.

‘ Driveway gates ’

Our old gates finally gave up the ghost! We needed bespoke gates due to the narrowness of the drive. Couldn't have any post sticking out. We are pleased we found Fortress gates. Their attention to detail is excellent and fittings substantial and very well finished exactly what we ordered. They kept us in touch all the way through.

‘ Excellent Service and Quality ’

Just had some electric gates fitted to the front of our property. We were on a bit of a tight time frame, but Kevin assured me that they would pull it in for us. True to his word everything was on time and communication was excellent throughout.
The gates are extremely heavy, the quality build is superb and better than any I have seen.
Kevin and Neil are very conscientious and ran us through everything so we knew how to operate them.
I would certainly recommend Fortress Gates and would like to thank them for building us a set of gates that really set off the entrance to our property.

‘ Utterly exceeded all expectations ’

This company has surely got to be the best in the business. Their work has to be seen to be believed. I'm very fussy. I want very high quality engineering, both in terms of design, gate build quality, motors and intercom technology complemented by outstanding workmanship. I also want serious value for money and great, friendly service. When I read the reviews about Fortress Gates I thought "too good to be true"! It's not!! They won't allow you to be disappointed!
Kevin and Neil are hugely impressive craftsmen of the old school. Nothing is too much trouble and their attention to detail and commitment to quality is exemplary. They are 100% reliable and have created a tremendously well engineered and beautifully fitted set of very large and truly magnificent gates with silent underground Roger motors, great safety features and excellent Videx GPS technology that works flawlessly every time.
I truly cannot find fault with this company who are without question the very best of the best!

From the start, we got a vibe that this company (Kevin and Neil) knew their stuff and would do a proper job. They had a positive can-do attitude, and LISTENED to our requirements.
Precise measurements were taken using laser equipment, and even an exploratory dig was carried out to ensure that on the day of installation the posts wouldn’t interfere with drains. All this was carefully planned and expertly carried out. Nothing was done in a slap-dash manner.
Their CAD design system allowed us to make adjustments to the design, and get a better visualisation of how things would look.
Installation went smoothly, and we ended up with TOP-QUALITY gates that looked STUNNING. It was definitely worthwhile paying that bit extra for good craftsmanship and attention to detail.
PS. We rarely write reviews, but this company left a lasting impression (for the right reasons!). So glad we chose them.
